Hon. Sobur Olayiwola Olawale, lawmaker representing Mushin Constituency II at the Lagos State House of Assembly, is dead.
Known as Omititi in political circles, Olawale was among the politicians, who stormed Jos, Plateau State capital, for the kick-off of the campaign of Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, Presidential Candidate of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).
An APC chieftain, who craved anonymity, told this Newspaper that he was still with Olawale at the weekend.
“We met at the residence of Senator Ganiyu Olanrewaju Solomon (GOS) on Sunday and exchanged pleasantries. He was looking very healthy.”
“Without preempting the circumstance, this could be high blood pressure. Whatever could have led to his death, this is so shocking and sad.”
The late Olawale was born in 1964. He represented Mushin Constituency II at the State House of Assembly.
Last Friday, during a novelty football match to celebrate the 50th birthday of the Speaker of the House, Mudashiru Obasa, the late lawmaker played in the match as the goalkeeper.
His death has thrown the State House of Assembly into mourning.
Omititi is survived by a wife and three children.
The Lagos State House of Assembly is yet to issue a statement on his demise.
